Motion

Additional Links

mō´shun : In 2 Esd 6:14, the King James Version "motion" represents the Latin commotio , "commotion," "disturbance" (the Revised Version (British and American) has revised entirely here). In Romans 7:5 , "the motions of sins, which were by the law," "motion" is used in the sense of "impulse," and "impulses" would probably give the best translation. But the Greek noun (παθήματα , pathḗmata ) is hard to translate exactly, and the Revised Version (British and American) has preferred "passions," as in Galatians 5:24 . Sanday (International Critical Commentary) paraphrases "the impressions of sense, suggestive of sin, stimulated into perverse activity by their legal prohibition." See PASSION . "Motion" is found also in Wisd 5:11 (the King James Version and the Revised Version margin) and 7:24 (the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American)) in a modern sense.
